[tex-live] too many files
Mon, 25 Feb 2002 20:30:15 +0000
I tried the 2 CD approach. Making a CD
with just Windows and i386 Linux comes in at 648 mbytes; making
a second CD without Windows and i386 Linux comes in at 722 mbytes.
I am at a loss as to how to proceed now. Yes, the correct thing to
do is cut out some packages, but which ones? Alternatively, to drop
the liveness, but I dont have the resources to work on that.
The folliwng table of sizes for texmf may amuse you; as you can see,
its the fonts and documentation which do the damage. Ideas like
"compress all the source files" does not help much.
